Building a Stronger, More Inclusive Community
For our kababayan who have settled in the land of the red maple leaf, Barangay Canada strives to be a helpful resource and ally in overcoming the trials and tribulations of life in a new land, far from loved ones.
As a media initiative, it aims to provide newcomers from the Philippines with information and insights about their new country and help them integrate more effectively with the larger Canadian society.
The information comes in the form of curated news that is relevant to the Filipino-Canadian diaspora, and through interviews with community leaders, policymakers and other social influencers on its video podcast.
Because the articles and podcast episodes are shared across various Filipino social media groups across the country, it creates a connection among these Filipino communities and brings them closer like a barangay, the Philippine term for a small, tight-knit locality.
